This presentation is co-sponsored by Center for Inquiry Portland and Oregonians for Science and Reason.

Vaccines have been one of the triumphs of medicine, making the suffering and death of many infectious diseases a distant memory. As the memory of past epidemics fades, the benefits of vaccines are forgotten, replaced by a fear of their risks. Unlike the very real benefits of vaccines, those risks are minimal, and present fears unfounded. This talk will explore the history of vaccines and the fears they raise, as well as the consequences of declining vaccination rates.
